Yang to Yin Yoga with Alana
The Yang part of practice allows us to integrate this openness and awareness into a sense of steadiness and alignment with a gentle energizing flow. A Yang practice strengthens the body and mind.
The Yin part of practice is gentle, quiet, and meditative. Finding stillness in each shape for 3-5 minutes which allows muscles to relax so that the connective tissue is stimulated as awareness is brought to sensations in the body. Yin Yoga has a nourishing effect on the organs, immune system, connective tissue, muscles and joints.
Where the Yang will focus on strengthening the muscles, the Yin part will focus on relaxing them completely. By balancing your Yin and Yang your energy flow will increase, giving you a peaceful balanced mind and body.
